Front Cover

Expanding on the success [i]Who Cares: A Loving Guide for My Future Caregivers[/i]. the author has created a new vehicle for individuals to 'tell' their future caregivers all the critically important facts about themselves. Recognizing that the vast majority of Americans will one day find themselves in the hands of caregivers, and understanding that the statistics strongly indicate that those caregivers won't be our spouses, adult children or close loved ones, but will be strangers, the importance of this guide cannot be overstated. When the day comes that we find ourselves in a caregiving situation, it just makes sense to have the means to inform those caregivers exactly who we are, how we 'want' to be cared for, the issues that are most important to us and those topics that rank highest on our list of 'must do's.' We purchase life and health insurance, as well as long-term care, auto, home, and all manner of insurance policies. You can have a voice in your future caregiving, even if your voice is silent.
